Twins


Twins at birth
Such cute little boys;
Loving and fighting
and sharing their toys.

Twins at birth,
growing together;
mirroring lives with
a bond never severed.

Twins at birth
Through marriage and life,
Distanced by miles
but never by strife.

Twins at birth
and in failing health,
Following each other
from life into death.

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
